After a wonderful visit with our son and his family we headed north toward Gold Beach on the coast of Oregon.
It was fun to see the first signs of ocean on the GPS
Passed and had to stop at this unique store.
Loved the red tin roof and fun architectural lines.
What fun, round doors, made me think of a home for a hobbit.
I found an interesting video on line : painter and woodworker named Harvey Shinerock who uses Burl to create amazing furniture and art. Kerby, Oregon
We stopped often watching for the whale migration but, when talking to another traveler at one stop, learned most had passed by 2 days earlier.
What amazing beauty and power behind the waves.
We had the beach to ourselves which presented it's own problems, how to get a picture of the two of us.
We balanced the camera on a log and used the timer.
We are trying as we travel to take a picture of each
state welcome sign.
We were talking earlier today how fun if we have one from
all 50 states!
I have always been fascinated by the natural bridges
that the ocean carves in these huge rocks.
Traveling along the road we saw this herd of Elk. What majestic animals. They weren't afraid of the car and we stayed our distance respecting their power.
Come back next week and enjoy more of the California highway 1 vistas. Blessings, Debbie
